Analysis of Trading for Picks 3,4,5



What would it take for the Bills to trade for a top 5 pick? I don’t believe they will move up to #1 or #2, besides I wouldn’t want them to give up a first rounder next year. I have used a draft value chart from walterfootball.com to try to figure out what the Bills would need to give up to move there. Here are the values for those picks:

#3 2200

#4 1800

#5 1700

Here are the Bills’ current picks:

#9 1350

#41 490

#73 225

#109 76

#149 31.8

#224 2

I will factor in trades concerning next year’s picks, but I have not included package deals that include two or more picks swapped on each side. This is just a general idea of what they would need to give up (besides the obvious #9 pick). For future picks I will assume that the Bills will pick at the same spot next year (hopefully I’m wrong, but that’s probably what their trade partner is assuming).

To move up to #3:

Points needed: 850

Picks to give up: 2nd rd (490), 3rd rd (225), 4th rd (76), 2015 4th rd (76)

Total: 867

To move up to #4:

Points needed: 450

Picks to give up: 3rd rd (225), 2015 3rd rd (225)

Total: 450

To move up to #5:

Points needed: 350

Picks to give up: 3rd rd (225), 4th rd (76), 5th rd (31.8), 2015 6th rd (23.8)

Total: 356.6

Of course they might be able to get away with giving up slightly less that the target number, but this is an approximation. It almost never works out perfectly (except the #4 pick scenario here). Thoughts?
